$2 shop quality

Only had Simpson washing machine each lasting 12-14 yrs so naturally purched another... now 2yr old Simpson 10kg washing SWT1043 has flooded my laundry and mechanic advised he can replace the circuit board plus a couple of parts with the likelihood it will cost up around the price of a replacement washer and the likelihood it will cost the same as the parts break again... clearly Simpson don't value quality, service or brand so what should I.... time to go LG Show details

Built not to last

We bought a 8 kg Simpson toploader washing machine. Washed Ok for the first year, then started to get imbalance problems and with the control panel. It finally stopped working shortly afterwards. A repair man was sent out to repair under warranty. The machine became increasingly imbalanced again. Just after 3 years, the machine sounds like a plane taking off on spin, with loud grinding noises and leaks water from the bottom. Machine is now unusable. Worst $800 we paid for a washing machine. Show details

simpsoN WASHING MACHINE IS TERRIBLE

I bought it 6years ago in newzealand and worked fine but after several using this, its stored in the garage. Recently I had a tenant and I let her use it. But suddenly the power wont turn on after it had been used for 10days. I called the technician to fix it because this machine is near brand new that is too good that I give it up. Being checked by technician, he said he had to replace the whole control panel that costs me $250. That made me really upset. How come near brand new machine to be out of order like this? Never buy simpson appliances also they dont run customer service center. When I emailed them, my enquires went to 3rd party repair center. What's such a ripping off? Show details

Perfect Family Washing Machine

The quick 20 minute cycle is a fantastic feature especially if you want to freshen up clothing. The auto water level saves time and money adjusting to only what is required. Daily wash 45 minute cycle is my go to selection. Show details

E50 motor error

E50 motor error, 13 months old, mild use, purchased from The Good Guys. Waiting 3 weeks for the tech who waits for parts and motivation. Very very disappointed, for the price. Will not buy again. Simpson / Electrolux offer me a number to discuss, which is missing a digit; then asks me to EMail. 2nd rate build, 3rd rate service, 4th rate motivation. No care, no responsibility. We will be boycotting Simpson / Electrolux for the remainder of our electrical lives. We lost a Grand in good faith; save yours- Show details

Horrible! Motor gone within 2 years!

I've always stood by Simpson as a brand, not anymore! Horrible machine since the moment we purchased it. Loud, takes forever to fill up the drum and then starts leaking water, so repair done to the machine within the 1st year of purchase. Starts leaking water again, not even into the 2nd year of purchase! 3 months past 2 year warranty E50 message pops up! Motor has gone and smells like burning mechanicals. So disappointed in this machine, $719 for this washer for it to not even last 2 years of use. Ridiculous. Never buying Electrolux products again. Show details

I should have done my research

I just bought my machine, first load and already not user friendly. I can't open the lid to add any items. It won't let me set the water level. It makes a "hissing" noise while washing. It takes so much longer to finish the wash. It won't let me set the water temperature. I always had a Simpson and the older models were so much better.
So disappointed with Simpson and Electrolux. I don't want the machine to tell me what to do. That is my job. Show details

UPDATE; Jan 2024. The child lock would not open and it was going to cost $248+ to repair so I gleefully loaded it onto the tray truck and took it to the tip. Wish I had done it years ago

Lemon of a washing machine

We bought this washing machine in May 2018 because we have had Simpson before and they were reliable. This one is just a nightmare. It sounds like someone is playing the drums in there when its on, we made a warranty claim in April 2020 and the service man said it was faulty from manufacture. He replaced 90% of the inner workings of the machine. Now its making the same noise only this time when we called about the warranty, it doesn't cover the replaced parts. Show details

DO NOT BUY

Where do I start - I don’t actually think it ever washed clothes that well to begin with butttt. Faults !!! Omg. Just before it turned 2 the good problems started . E10 no water and also thinks the lid is locked . It’s getting water it’s got all it needs it just is a lemon of a machine . Service agent came out and couldn’t find anything wrong - surprise surprise . I’m now down to 1 setting on warm water as it’s the only way it will work. And if you use more then 3 times in a day it goes on strike for hard labor . Service agent is coming out again - which I don’t see the point because clearly the machine is a lemon I want my money back so I can go elsewhere !!! Do your self a favor and don’t buy!!!  Show details

My machine always stops on e20

It is a blocked waste water drain pipe. Check hoses and outlet connections. If you find nothing wrong, May have to call it under warranty repair.
